Healthy Body Weight Management

Extra weight is not a character flaw. It's a complex problem that can impair health and quality of life. Our weight management specialists at the MUSC Health Weight Management Center understand the complexity of weight loss. A team of registered dietitians, exercise physiologists, psychologists, physicians, and nursing staff work together, using their diverse knowledge and latest technological advances to help reduce excess weight. The MUSC Weight Management Center was recently ranked as one of the top 15 medical weight management centers in the nation.
